    need a bag.

    i umm, . . .juggle . . . and i'm getting a bike to travel to the local juggling club in atlanta, however i don't really have a bag that can carry 5 or 6 juggling clubs. they run about 20 inches long, but need some fluff room obviously, anybody know where i can get a bag that's comfy to ride with, but can still take that many clubs? i'll be carrying other stuff, but if it fits the clubs, everything else can go in between the handles. oh, and less than 80 bucks would be nice ^^;

    a soft guitar case with shoulder straps

    or one of the great messenger bag makers in atl will sew you up a bag.
    ride over to sopo tell them to hook you up with someone.

    if their prices are too high I will sew you one next time I am in town. I am in birmingham right now. but I would love to make you something.


    or if you want to come straight to me, I can make something out of canvas or cordura. cordura cost more. but it last much longer.

    i'd be fine with that : ) i won't be in atlanta for 4 more weeks (i go to georgia tech, but live in nc) i wont NeEd a bag until then : P canvas sounds fine to me, just as long as it doesn't have plastic clasps. I'm not sure exactly how much room they will all take, but i can get you some measurements if you're really up for it : )

    I carry 4 clubs, 3 torches, 9 squeezits, and fuel in a small canvas duffel bag with a shoulder strap. Put it over your head like a quiver for arrows and you're set.

    BTW, I checked your profile. How's the 5 clubs coming?

    it's going great : ) went from not ever picking 5 up, to a qualify in less than a week, about 3 days, today (about a week and a half in) i got about 5 or 6 qualifies, my best is still only 12 catches though ^^; i haven't worked on 7 ball lately O.o i hope it's still ok, best in that is about 25 throws : )

    Do you work on numbers a lot? lately it's all i've been doing, but i flop between numbers, siteswap, and technical juggling.

    sometimes we're short on people with unicycles, some people bring them but don't use them often, there are usually more people on tuesdays

    I used to be fanatical about numbers juggling in the late '80s. I still juggle, but I mostly maintain my current skills. I'm quite comfortable with 5 balls (used to be able to do 7 for 2 jugs), somewhat comfortable with 5 clubs. I used to love passing clubs. I was lucky enough to learn from this guy http://flybob.com/ in Saskatoon where we used to pass 8 clubs (occasionally tried 9).

    This looks like the right crowd to ask this question, can anyone recommend a decent unicycle (24" wheel) for under $300? I mostly will be using it on the road. I've checked out the ones available from unicycle.com, however I don't have experience with those brands. I currently have an old Braun unicycle.

    i don't have a unicycle myself, though i'm looking into one.

    http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/for...?s=&forumid=27

    that should point you in the right direction : ) i know nothing of unicycles other than what i am looking for myself, which is a flat fork (which you wont need on a 24 inch i'm assuming because you'll be using it for distance and not tricks) and replacable drop guards or substantial drop guards on the end of the seat (which you won't need if you're pretty decent on one) other than that, i'm not too picky. . . but the bike shop is going to look at me really funny when i come in one day and order one child-sized carbon fiber wheelset. . . wheel . . . not set. . . in any case, it's going to be a really pimp uni xP

    good luck ^^; which i could help more. . . . LOL! you could juggle 7 ball and 5 club before i was born x-P wow, i'm really behind!!
